THE GREAT BENEFITS OF BOTOX® TREATMENT

BOTOX DUBAI | 27 March 2021

Wrinkles are a seemingly unavoidable part of ageing.  As we mature, our skin becomes less elastic, drier and thinner.  Skin loses the ability to protect itself against damage and that is why once you reach a certain age you have the all too familiar lines, creases and wrinkles on your skin, which is particularly noticeable on your face.

It only takes seven seconds to make a first impression, and having a more youthful, revitalised appearance can boost confidence and improve professional performance, both at work and in social situations.

Although wrinkles are not worrying, they do make you look and then in turn feel older than you really want.  There are many different creams and surgical procedures that have been developed to help; however Botox® is probably the most commonly available and popular non-surgical wrinkle treatment.  As it does involve injections being applied to the muscles in your face, it is entirely natural for you to have some reservations about whether Botox® treatment is right for you or not.  This is why, to help you make that decision, we have put together a list of the most compelling benefits of going forward with the treatment.

Botox® treatment does not require any surgery and therefore you do not need to worry about incisions, stitches or even scarring.  It is the perfect alternative to going under the knife and having plastic surgery, as it is completely non-invasive.  In fact, you do not need to even go to a hospital at any point for Botox® injections.

There is therefore less complications, and it will disrupt your life less than some other more intensive procedures and treatments.

While the anti-ageing benefits of Botox® are probably the reason you are here in the first place, they should still be highlighted.  If you find looking in the mirror is becoming more disheartening, and you notice more lines and wrinkles appearing, there are options such as Botox® to make a quick improvement.The injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing your facial muscles which gives your skin a smoother look.

What if you decide you do not like the results of Botox®?  The great thing about this type of treatment is that although it often has striking and very noticeable effects, Botox® differs to plastic surgery in that the treatment does not give you permanent results.  It lasts for approximately 4 to 6 months and if you like the results, you only need to have the injections two to three times a year; if you don’t like the results, the effects will wear off.

What are the advantages of a breast uplift?

BREAST AUGMENTATION DUBAI | 25 March 2021

Sagging, or droopy breasts, which result from the relaxation of ligaments, can affect a woman’s self-esteem and resulting in a negative body image. It can make you look and feel older than you’d like. Breast uplift, Breast lift or Mastopexy surgery can offer you a great way to regain your body confidence, giving you fuller-looking breasts and correcting their positioning on your body for a more uplifted appearance.

A Mastopexy procedure can give your body back its youth and create firmer breasts.

What type of breast issue do you have?

Breast size, shape and sag: If your breasts are empty or saggy, or you are unhappy with the shape of your breasts or the position of your nipple, a Breast Uplift or Mastopexy may be the most suitable option for you.

Breast volume loss and tone: Sometimes the problem isn’t size, but the loss of volume and tone. If your breasts appear ‘empty’ or simply make you feel old and unattractive, a breast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, can restore and rejuvenate this part of your body.

Breast skin, large areolas and nipple position: Stretched and thin skin, overly large areolas and downward-pointing nipples may affect how you feel about the look of your breasts, something a Mastopexy can effectively treat.

Combined breast procedures may help?It is very common for an uplift procedure to be carried out in conjunction with Breast Augmentation, resulting in fuller, correctly positioned breasts. We also offer Breast Auto-Augmentation which is a great option for patients who are looking to remove their breast implants but are worried about losing too much volume. Your breast surgeon will use your existing breast tissue to help reshape the bust to give you fullness in the upper chest along with an uplifted appearance too.

Cheek Fillers – Restore lost volume & define the cheek contour

FILLERS IN DUBAI | 21 March 2021

High cheek bones are often associated with beauty and celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Naomi Campbell and Kiera Knightly are some of the most requested cheekbone inspirations across our clinics. Why have dermal fillers in the cheek?

To look younger: fat loss in the cheek can make you look gaunt and older

To restore cheek volume: weight loss can cause this or having a naturally slim face

High cheek bone definition: to improve definition to the face and facial balance

To lift the jaw line: creating a more youthful look

To lift the mid face: to improve a sunken look caused by age or weight loss

When you attend clinic for your cheek filler treatment, some patients decide to have numbing cream applied to the area being treated before their treatment. If this is the case your practitioner will allow 5-10 minutes for the effects of this to work.  Dermal cheek filler can be placed at 3 sites within the cheek area which includes the temple, zygomatic malar and sub malar region. These areas run from the outer corner of your eyes down to your mid cheek. Dermal cheek filler is usually placed above the cheek bone to achieve more definition or into the soft tissue / fat pads within the cheek to increase the volume and help to lift the cheek.

Additional filler may be used across the cheek to help volumise the area and enhance the contour of the cheek.

Looking at Some of the Benefits of Botox

BOTOX DUBAI | 18 March 2021

Although Botox is most commonly used for aesthetic improvements, the benefits of Botox now go further than vanity and for this reason – along with the fact that Botox is increasingly popular for the patient.

Whilst the upper face is most commonly treated with Botox injections, it can still be used in the lower face, around the mouth, nasal area, chin or jaw for example. The difference in treating the lower face though is in the fact that the lower facial muscles are much more complex and so there is a much higher risk of Botox being problematic when used below the eyes. Botox can also be used in some areas of the neck.

What many people do not realise however is that Botox can now be used to treat medical problems that aren’t completely aesthetic. Botox has been used successfully to treat hyperhidrosis – or excessive sweating – for years now and is bringing relief to thousands of people who suffer from the embarrassing problem. When Botox is injected in the underarm or palm it reduces the activity of the glands that cause the body to perspire for a period of six months to a year.

Another Botox miracle has been found in the fact that Botox can ease the symptoms of migraines and tension headaches. When the muscles in the forehead are injected with Botox, it reduces muscle activity as well as the body’s perception of pain in that area and this minimises the sensitivity of migraine and tension headache sufferers to their symptoms. Botox has also been found to help various eye conditions, anal fissures, spasms of the face or neck and a number of other conditions caused by over-zealous muscle activity.

As with other drugs it is without doubt that more benefits of Botox will be discovered eventually. Therefore making Botox readily available in more places is going to be of massive benefit not only for the patient but for the service provider too. Botox training can provide medical professionals with everything they need to know about adding Botox to their treatment list and will give the consumer more and more options when it comes to finding a treatment provider that can offer Botox in a safe and trustworthy environment.

Innovative Renuvion skin tightening to help you look rejuvenated & youthful

PLASTIC SURGERY DUBAI | 15 March 2021

Renuvion uses a combination therapy of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and promote cellular rejuvenation. The procedure is safe and targeted, preventing any trauma to surrounding tissue. Renuvion/J-Plasma is even, controlled, and precise, making it ideal for a wide variety of treatment areas.

During a Renuvion procedure, Dr. Vigo makes a tiny incision just under the top layer of skin into which he places the treatment device. The device then delivers controlled radiofrequency energy that contracts the skin. Almost simultaneously, the device sends in helium gas to effectively cool the treatment area. The combined effect of heating and cooling contracts the tissues just under your dermis, resulting in effective tightening without surgery.

Treatment areas

Renuvion/J-Plasma can tighten skin in just about any area where lax skin is a complaint. These include the:

Arms

Abdomen and side waist

Breasts

Thighs

Buttocks

Lower face and neck

Above the knees

Abdomen

The procedure replaces surgical “lift” procedures in these areas, such as a thigh lift or arm lift.

Benefits of Renuvion/J-Plasma

Renuvion/J-Plasma is minimally invasive and has a much shorter recovery time than an invasive surgical procedure. Downtime following treatment lasts just a few days. The procedure results in minimal scarring as the incisions are placed in discrete areas that heal quickly. With Renuvion/J-Plasma, you get natural, almost instant results. The skin-tightening effect continues to progress over time, too. The procedure is effective on large areas of your body, but can be so precise that it tightens otherwise hard-to-treat areas on the face and neck. With tighter skin, fine lines around your eyes, cheeks, and lips disappear.

The Best Candidates for Renuvion/J-Plasma

You’ll undergo a thorough health evaluation prior to Renuvion/J-Plasma procedures. Dr. Vigo will also help you understand what to expect with the treatment. Although Renuvion/J-Plasma is incredibly precise and effective, he wants you to have realistic expectations. If you have moderate-to-severe loose skin, such as from significant weight loss, you may be a better candidate for other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or thigh lift.

 

What can an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck achieve?

TUMMY TUCK DUBAI | 5 March 2021

An abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen flatter and firmer. Excess fat and skin are removed from the abdomen area in order to tighten the muscles and tissues of the abdominal area. Flabby skin on the belly is usually the result of weight-loss, yo-yo dieting or pregnancy. It might just be lax and wrinkled skin that has lost its elasticity, but in more extreme cases the muscles are stretched and there can be unattractive, overhanging folds of skin that won’t spring back into shape.

Pregnancy, weight loss and the natural ageing process can leave behind excess, sagging skin around the stomach(abdomen) area. This excess skin can’t be removed through exercise or non-invasive treatments. The solution is an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck (mini tummy tuck), which will give you a flatter, firmer abdomen.

Tummy Tuck Dubai

Dr. Vigo understands that deciding what you require can be confusing. He is here to help guide you to the best tummy choice so you feel confident. At your consultation he can discuss the various body contouring options that will be right for you. Age and skin elasticity can often be a deciding factor, let the expert guide you on his extensive range of tummy options.

This helps to define the natural lip shape and restore volume and fullness. The amount of filler used will depend on the look that you want to achieve. We pride ourselves on providing patients will natural looking filler results.

The results from dermal lip filler are instant however swelling and redness are very common after treatment but these will usually subside within a week.

There is not much downtime associated with dermal lip filler. You may have swelling or bruising post-treatment but many patients return to work after treatment.

We advise that you avoid strenuous exercise for 4-6 hours, avoid touching your face for 6 hours including applying make-up, minimise your sun exposure and protect yourself with SPF.

What happens during the procedure?

For certain dermal filler procedures topical anaesthetic is first applied and left to numb the skin for 20-30 minutes. A numbing injection can be given to numb the area further although this is rarely required. The dermal filler is then injected into the area required using a very fine needle or blunt ended cannula. Results can be seen immediately after dermal filler treatments and generally last up to 12 months or longer.

Wrinkle Injections to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles

FILLERS IN DUBAI | 2 March 2021

As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and lines begin to form which can make us look older than we are, or can spoil otherwise healthy-looking skin.

Wrinkle relaxing injections are suitable for almost anyone who has wrinkles or fine skin lines and is looking to reduce their appearance. Lines and wrinkles are unfortunately just a natural sign of ageing but they can also develop through exposure to the sun and because of frowning. Come and see Dr. Vigo for a consultation to see how he can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Areas of Face treated:

Frown lines

Brow and forehead lines

Glabella lines/ lines between eye brows

Neck

Fillers in Dubai

Wrinkle Relaxing Injection treatments will vary depending on what your nurse or doctor has recommended as the best treatment for you following a consultation.

Wrinkle Injections are the most effective rejuvenating treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out and you’ll be left with a youthful, glowing appearance. There is no downtime after having treatment. You can go back to work with none of your friends or colleagues the wiser.

Which parts of the face should I treat with dermal filler?

Dermal fillers can be used to treat different areas of the face, including the lips, chin, jaw, cheeks, forehead and nose, and are ideal for dealing with specific issues such as loss of volume, deep lines, tear troughs, and jowls.

What are dermal fillers made of?

Dermal fillers can be either collagen, calcium hydroxyl or hyaluronic acid. In the past collagen fillers were used which caused reactions in some people and so are no longer used. Some fillers are made of calcium hydroxyl apatite but can not be dissolved if needed to be removed for any reason. Most fillers are now made of hyaluronic acid which naturally exists in the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers produce the most natural results and are the safest as they can be dissolved if needed.

PRP HAIR LOSS TREATMENT – THE DIFFERENCE YOU’RE LOOKING FOR

  • Cost and time effective
  • Prevention of further hair loss
  • Reduces rate of hair thinning
  • Regrowth of fuller and thicker hair
  • Suitable for men and women of all ages

Benefits include:

Breast augmentation is an operation that uses silicone or saline implants to enlarge the breasts and improve their shape. Also known as breast enlargement, breast implant, breast enhancement or ‘boob job’. Choosing to have breast augmentation is a big decision, and there are many reasons why women elect to undergo the procedure. Some women feel that their breasts are too small or out of proportion with the rest of their body. Previous pregnancy or weight loss can cause breasts to reduce in size, sometimes developing excess skin pockets and sagging. Some women have breasts that are different sizes to each other and opt for breast augmentation to restore symmetry.
